A big city newspaper publishes a syndicated columnist’s advice to the lovelorn. A woman writes that her husband wants a separation or a divorce. He blamed her for the relationship, and she apologized in order to preserve the peace. He still wants a separation. The columnist advised the woman to agree to a separation first. She feels the time spent might clear the woman’s head, so she might find herself going for a divorce. The columnist is hesitant about the husband as he shows no love, but holds out some hope for reconciliation.
- I take all the blame in the marriage and my husband doesn’t see to try anymore.
- Separate is thinking.. Divorce is letting go. You have to think then do whats best for you.
- You might be happier divorcing. It might be the best long term action.
“If your marriage isn’t as unhealthy as you made it out to be here, then the solitude, focus and clarity permitted by your separation will help you repair your communication from your two different homes.”
